We are back. For the 5th year. From now until Mother’s Day we are giving away locks to single moms across the country. They are sterling silver Heartlocks with exclamation points which signify the ‼️‼️ of motherhood. A feeling that is relatable to anyone who’s been one or had one. If you know, love, or are a single mom we want to hear about it. Simply fill out the form below telling us about yourself or a single mom that you want to celebrate. This is not a contest – it’s first come first serve. After you submit, you will hear from us so you know if and when the lock is coming.

Why are we giving away locks to single moms?
We have been giving locks away to single moms since 2016. We do this because I was a single mom when my son was small. Then I met my husband and together with our children we made a family.
Being a single mom was the most difficult time in my life.
Mother's Day was specifically bittersweet. When you have a small child and it’s Mother’s Day and virtually everyone around you has a partner who is celebrating their “motherliness”… well it can feel sad.
I remember that feeling and I want to give back in a small personal way.
Why do the locks have an exclamation point on them?
Our locks have 6 sides on which to engrave names, words, messages... anything. I was thinking about what to engrave on these very special locks and "Mom" didn't quite work because that is not universal. What IS universal is the powerful, speechless feeling of motherhood. The !!! of motherhood — both how it feels to be a mother and how one feels about their mother... so that's what we did.
Giving the locks is a small thing in the grand scheme of things but we have found that they make the recipients happy. It is that simple. To date we have given away thousands of locks to single moms all over the country – we even gave some away in our vending machine - and we are not done yet.
